The property

This newly-built cottage is situated on the site of Whitby’s former police station in a quiet residential area in the centre of Whitby.

The station, harbour, beach and shops are all within easy walking distance – perfect for families wishing to explore Yorkshire’s most beloved seaside town. Set over three floors, this immaculate, modern property has the added advantage of a courtyard garden and private parking for up to two cars.

It is tastefully decorated throughout in calming neutrals with accents of cobalt blue and turquoise, befitting its coastal location. On the ground floor the open plan living area includes a good-sized sitting room with comfortable seating, TV and tripod floor lamps.

A lovely space to just chill and catch up over a glass of something.

Enjoy lazy breakfasts or relaxed holiday dining at the stylish dining table for six – it’s always more sociable when you can keep the cook company! The smart kitchen area benefits from under cupboard lighting and is well equipped for family catering; a nearby utility and handy cloakroom complete the picture. Moving upstairs, you will find a characterful twin bedroom with two full size 3′ single beds.

The shabby-chic mirror atop a large, distressed chest of drawers goes perfectly with quirky bunting and colourful, cosy blankets to create a welcoming space for children or adults. There is an elegant double bedroom with a king-size bed and en-suite shower room.

The double size walk-in shower is pure bliss after a day spent at the beach!

Or why not indulge in a relaxing bubble bath in the fully tiled contemporary bathroom? Wow!

The entire second floor is devoted to a fantastic master double bedroom.

What a pleasure it is to look out over beautiful Whitby every morning and see its bustling harbour and spectacular Abbey in the distance.

For added comfort, there is a lovely dressing area with plenty of storage and an easy chair.

The en-suite shower room has a good size shower, basin and WC. In warmer months, guests can dine al fresco in the pretty rear courtyard garden.

There is a small garden with a bench and private parking for two cars to the front of the property – a real bonus in Whitby. Stroll into Whitby to enjoy delicious fish and chips, followed by an afternoon at the beach.

Meander over the swing bridge and soak up its old world charm of Whitby’s cobbled twisty streets, quaint tea rooms and independent shops.

Learn more about Captain Cook, Whitby’s famous son, at the Captain Cook Memorial Museum.

Kids will enjoy racing their parents to the top of the 199 steps! For more seaside fun, visit Scarborough’s Peasholm Park with its boating lake and miniature railway.
